Angry PLEASE HELP I NEED ADIVCE BEFORE I GO INSANE

OK IM STRESSED. dOES ANYONE HAVE THIS PROBLEM WHERE THEY HAVE RED MARKS JUST ON THEIR CHEEKS??? (ALONG THE CHEEK BONE AREA??? HOWEVER I HARDLY GET THE ZIT I JUST GET THOSE RED MARKS THEY SEEM TO KEEP POPPING UP EVERYWHERE. i AM ON OTC now and it helped alot with the oil, however even those my skin is now drier i STILL break out i never really had huge zits but now i have a few due to OTC! and of course it happens on my cheeks and do not go away. IF i put a drying lotion on it the bump is still there but the skin around it flakes and it is all messy. It is frustrating i do not know what is going on. I am 21 and my skin looks a mess does anyone have the same problem i do....mainly on cheeks ..where red marks appear but they are soft (not ice pick scars or nething) just red marks which make my skin look blotchy as hell....help

Could you be having an allergic reaction to makeup or hair products or? What you've described doesn't sound like acne. Do you use makeup or hair styling products? You may have very sensitive skin. I would see a dermatologist to be sure.

Hey, have you checked to see if you have Rosacea. It's similar to acne, but it's characterized by redness in the cheek area. Do some web surfing and see if you can find some pictures.

I recommend that you see your doctor as it sounds like you have rosacea
